It’s reunion time for a lot of us — my college reunion and elementary school reunion dovetail. Like when Chanukah and Christmas fall on the same day or Halley’s comet marks both Mark Twain’s birth and death.
The point is, if you want a really good story that you haven’t read elsewhere, and to imagine […]
I once wrote a book under the pseudonym of the Lone Ranger — John Reid — and, let’s face it: a lot of time has passed. Even David Letterman is now long off the air, let alone Reid’s cry of Hi, Yo, Silver!
But if you’re in the mood for a five-minute […]
The Republican Party used to offer us competent, accomplished vice presidents like Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush.
Lately? Dan Quayle, Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin, and, now — “Trump Is No Longer The Worst Person In Government” — Mike Pence. (Thanks, Glenn!)
. . . Noting that Arpaio was in his Tempe audience, Pence, […]
And here’s what he says:
Our nation is indeed at a crossroads. Will we pursue the search for truth or will we dodge, weave and evade the truth? I am of course referring to the investigation into serious allegations of illegal conduct by the president of the United States — that the president has engaged […]
I can say so many things in Greek! Or at least, as our Acropolis guide put it (on a different topic), “Much more less than before.”
Greece is great, the people are awesome, and if you’re able to come in May, before it gets really hot and crowded, you are lucky dogs indeed.
So far, […]
Already, with a title like that, I have people angry. Of course the truth matters but why do you think YOU know the truth and we don’t?
Or so I imagine the very large, very red-faced man to my right at the Acropolis would have responded, had we talked.
I hadn’t noticed him at first.
Not sure I want to spend $30 million to live in Dubai. But these imagined wind-powered buildings, with independently rotating apartments, are pretty cool. Two minutes. (Thanks, Mel!)
And if that caught your interest, here’s a YouTube on the world’s “20 Most Futuristic Buildings.”
Greece is amazing, but a glass-domed igloo under […]
Last Friday, I offered this free voter registration toolkit.
Today, if you run a nonprofit — or know someone who does — this free toolkit.
The former could save our democracy, if enough young people use it to help shape their future.
The latter . . . well, I just look for any […]
Wouldn’t that be great? If he had decided to become a DJ in later life — DJ Trump — instead of the greatest danger America and the world have ever faced from the Oval Office?
But if he hasn’t already resigned (I’m in Greece, so might have missed the news), treat yourself to […]
If all goes according to plane, I’ll be gawking at the Acropolis as you read this. I was too young to see them build it, and then Athenian democracy died (and then Roman democracy died), but have always wanted to visit.
